It just wouldn't be right if in during all this league vs. league stuff that the legendary Rucker Park didn't get involved. No more, says the official Twitter account of the Goodman.
Breaking News!!!…..Goodman vs. EBC Rucker Park game tenative date is October 1, 2011 in New York….details coming….Stay Tuned!
October 1... but, but isn't that when training camps will be under way and preseason games are just around the corner? Yeah right. The lockout's going to to ruin everything and there won't be any NBA basketball ever. So this Oct. 1 game between Rucker and the Goodman might be as good as it gets until, well, until someone organizes the next one.

There aren't rosters or names attached to this yet and there's a good chance it might not even feature NBA players. I'm sure Kevin Durant will want to play in it because really, it could be a pickup game at your local church and if Durant heard about it, he'd be there. But he's got a special tie to Rucker now with that 66-point legendary performance.

But with the game at Rucker, it's going to be good no matter who plays. It's a historical place and there will be an ample amount of buzz surrounding it. There aren't a ton of NBA players that really call Rucker "home" so I don't even have any good guesses as to who that roster could include, but it's going to be quality hoops and I'm sure a few big names with be sure to attach themselves to it.
